Balsamic Roasted Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes and Capers

Balsamic Roasted Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes and Capers
I had some leftover cherry tomatoes from my trip to the local Farmers Market on Saturday so I decided to make my very favorite salmon dish. This Balsamic Roasted Salmon with Cherry Tomatoes and Capers is delicious by itself, but it’s also great served over a bed of fresh spinach or some steamed brown rice. I just love this recipe, first because it uses only a few ingredients, second because it is so simple and cooks quickly in one dish, and third because I feel like I’m so healthy after I’ve eaten it. I just wish I could get my husband to eat salmon. I end up making his with Halibut which is also delicious and not a big deal to cook a different piece of fish with the same recipe. He likes his cooked in a separate dish though, he just doesn’t like anything about salmon, and he can tell if I cook them in the same baking dish.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


1 1/2 pounds salmon, wild, steaks or filet
2 cups tomatoes, grape or cherry (or chop 2 medium tomatoes)
1/3 cup capers
1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette

Preparation: Cut salmon into 4 pieces. Place in a baking dish. Place tomatoes and capers over and around salmon. Pour balsamic dressing over salmon. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 20 minutes until salmon is cooked through (depends on your oven as well as how thick the salmon pieces are). Serve with capers and tomatoes on top of salmon.

    That’s so hilarious, I’ve never heard of anyone hating salmon that much! Halibut is a great choice too though… but a little pricier. The only aversion i have that parallels your husband’s to salmon is BEETS. I loathe beets! I can’t even pick it out of my food because i can’t eat anything that it has touched – the flavor transfers right over.

    He hates beets too! I LOVE Beets….love, love, love them!

    Thank you for a new salmon recipe, it seems all I see lately is baked goods and candy and soup, I am ready for some fish! Sounds wonderful with capers!

  6. The capers sound like the perfect addition to salmon!

    Hey Tiffany:
    Thanks for the comment. I agree. I have a super sweet tooth, but I don’t bake much…I end up eating too much of it, especially starting in October and going right through December 31 when I make my New Years’ resolution to stop! This salmon is super quick and easy and every one I make it for loves it. Sometimes I serve it over spinach and through some cooked Quinoa on top. Yum!

    Hi Sommer….they are yummy with the sweet balsamic and tomatoes….I actually ordered a dish similar to this in a local restaurant, and then made my own version at home. It’s super easy and quick…but looks like more work. Good ingredients help make it easy.
